The ruling coalition does not have a real majority says opposition leader Julius Sabatauskas. The ruling coalition, by leaving the Seimas hall, demonstrated weakness, Seimas Speaker Viktoras Pranckietis states. On Tuesday, he withstood a motion of no confidence, albeit the ruling coalition is questioning its legality.

“The majority displayed today that they are the minority. I believe that they have to also heed the others people in Seimas. I will once more call everyone to work normally and calmly,” V. Pranckietis commented after the vote.
